best. 




Josephine Carriere 




"A graceful and pleasing figure is a 
perpetual letter of recommendation." 



Joyce expressed the desire to attend the Simmons Flo- 
ra Culture School. With her irresistible personality show- 
ing through she also said that a housewife's career would be 
very acceptable. Everyone wishes her the best. 




"What his heart thinks his tongue speaks." 



Jimmy's jovial wit seems to belie his choice of mech- 
anical drafting for a career but we all kno\-/ that the dis- 
plays of his work in school more thcin prove his worth. 
Outstanding in his personality, "Diggy" is destined to 
success. 




James Dargan

And confident tomorrows."

If you combine p pleasant personality, neat appear-

"Duster." In the yerrs he has been with our class. Duster 
has shown that he tnkes en responsibility with enthusiasm 
and always turns out a splendid job. He is sure to be a 
success, and our best wishes go with him always. 






Alfred Frechette 



'True wisdom is to know what is best worth 
knowing, and to do what is best worth doing,"

"Evj^^"' , the "Southern Congress 'Jomen", thinks a secre-

her long. More of our best to you, "Evie", 



Evelyn Parks 



"None but himself can be his parallel." 



"Sabo", our good-natured sports-minded member, offers 
three choices for his future profession. First, he'd like 
to try his luck in pro-baseball. He's done some fine 
pitching for the school, too. Next, he would like to be a 
mortician, and then, his first choiceof schools is Beutler. 
'"'ell, that's quite a schedule "Sabo", but just dig right 
in. You're aiiong friends. 




Leslie Patterson 




"Character is a diamond that scratches every 
other stone." 



Priscilla would like to be a secretary, although, a 
little more motivation was shown when she gave her second 
choice of housewife. V'hichever it is first, she has the know 
how to be very successful in either. 



Priscilla Rouillard 



"Give us a man who will step forward 
and take the responsibility."

serve testimony of his personality and initiative. 




John Turner 




"If you would create something, you 
must be something." 



Gloria Tummillo 



Gloria is the third member of our class who has devoted 
so much time to making our social functions function. The 
Boston School of Practical Art is her choice for the further- 
ment of her commercial art ability. The decorative work she 
has done in school reflects her personality and we've re- 
ceived some very nice compliments about its attractiveness. 



"Wit is the x'lower of the imagination." 

The class Rube — Goldberg, and punster intends to study 
Industrial Chemistry for his life's work. Kenny's imagi-

a few days Bobby has a picture of you indulging in a silly 
pose. He's off to a good start on his career of photo- 
grapher and he plans to continue his studies at the 
"Country School of Photography, Vermont. 




Robert v:ood 




'*Charm strikes the sight, but merit wins the soul." 

A hard working, quietly efficient future secretary is 
"Dot", Her impression en her course v.ill be carried into a 
very successful career with a lucky employer. Dot will carry 
our best wishes when she enters into her choice of under- 
takings.

yAIDO: VOYAGE 



Have you ever seen a vessel 
Shining new, not yet been sailed? 

TAiith its final polish added 
^"ot e chance yet to have failed 

Have you seen the bottle shatter 
As it hits the sturdy bow 

And the crowd loudly shouting 
Now, Now, Fowl 

It slides then into waitinp waves 



It's like the high school seniors 
On their way to show their worth 

V/ith their final polish added 
Over years they lived since birth 

Have you seen them narching forv.ard 
YJith their teachers showing how 

As their loved ones fondly murmur 
Now, i:ow, Now I 

Then they slip into the waiting Vkorld 



Each builder proud of the part he gave As a ship unto a wave 

And those who lead them onward 
So proud of the help they gave. 



Carol Kennedy 
Senior Class Poem 



GOODBYE -AiLSTA'CCD HIGH SCHOOL 



Goodbye Westwood, 

Good old "Green and White." 

Farewell Westwood, 

You'll be our guiding light; 

We will never forget all the fun, 

And the mem'ries we've won, 

Are dear to our hearts. 

Thank you teachers.

PROPHECY 



It is now the year 1959, exactly ten years since the class of •i+9 graduated 
from Westvfood High. Let's see what this dignified class has contributed to the 
world . 

Carol Jean McFaul recently completed her course at costume designing, and 
found herself in a law suit for designing a new kind of something that doesn't 
seem to fit the approval of the designing board, but her lawyer husband, Fred C. 
will fix everything up. Won't he Carol??? 

Dick Eastman andM Frechette are>«ry much engrossed in the 200-piece Boston 
Symphony Orchestra which they got together themselves. They are now in their 
second year en the television screen. 

Gloria Turamillo and AnnlfedLeod have just started anew school for decorating. 
All those interested in art courses, and decorating, please call, Hubbard 2-4500. 

Jocelyn Barnes and Ethel Anderson just can't seem to get away from each other. 
Since Joy married Bob, Janie has moved and has been employed as none other than 
Joy's "Baby Sitter." 

We find that Bill Lally has been chosen to manage the Boston Red Sox base- 
ball team. !>fow they certainly vi 11 win the Pennant with such an outstanding manager. 

The Metropolitan Opera Company announced last week that for the first time 
they vslll present "THE STUDENT PRINCE" within their theater. The leading role 
is held by Barbie Fay, who is still singing under no one els^s guidance but her 
own. 

Leigh Baldwin recently gave her grand performance before the Royal Family 
of England. Next on her tour is the V/hite House in Washington. 

After playing college football for Notre Dame, we find Ronald Hodgkins as 
star back on the Yank's team. He's just completed his tvrenty-sixth touchdown of 
the year. 

Joan Martin, a successful dental hygenist, just took a two-weeks vacation 
to celebrate her third anniversary with her husband who is now conducting his 
own orchestra. Guess Who????? 

VJe find Dorothy Wooding has just made her debut at Carnegie Hall as a pianist 
for the Chicago Symphony. The critics seem to have approved very strongly. Good 
luck Dotty. 

Flash! 1 1 Robert Wood has been appointed as chief photgrapher for the New York 
Times. Congratulations Bobby. 

Gerry Goochhas finally settled in California on that ranch that she has al- 
ways wanted. 

Powers Modeling Agency has found a million-dollar beauty from our little old 



Westwood Kigh School. A Powers Agent discovered Sally Tolinan while she was soda 
jerking in the Westwood Pharmacy. 'Tiliracles will happen**, says Sally. 

Haslam and Long's Miscellaneous Agency has a world-wide record of construct- 
ing, arranging, and whatever you wish to have done. It seems to have grown in 
size as there are two big branches in Florida. The two millionaires are now 
vacationing in the sunny land of Bermuda. 

In a little white farm house in Holliston we find Joyce and Tuck with their 
twins, Donald Jr. and Karen. Although a mother, Joyce is still very much inter- 
ested in redecorating. On arriving home from a business trip recently, Tuck 
found his house completely rejuvenated. 

Popsy, in her fifth year as an airline hostess, has just turned down her 
50th proposal. I guess she really meant it when she said that airline hostessing 
was the life for her. 

While reading over the Societv Page of the Boston Heraia, we find that John 
and Nancv have two new additions, John Jr. and ^^argaret Ann. 

Evelyn Parks and Dave Smith have just signed a contract for the leading 
roles in 'Madame Butterfly." 

Barbara Munroe and Norma Kelley are both private secretaries of the Presi- 
dent of the United States. 

Joe Hammond has discovered the solution of mixing CO*^ and HO like the 
plants do for the science world. Other scientists have spend years trying to 
track this solution, but Joe was just too srnart for them all. 

Virginia O'Bocki seems to be on her toes most of the time lately. She re- 
cently joined the chorus line in the Ballet Russe. 

Carol Kennedy's dream has finally come true. Her boat from Holland has just 
arrived in Boston Harbor with her betrothed on it. 

Kenny Webster Jr. has just written a new dictionary. According to the Times, 
Kenny found the old Webster's dictionary a little out of date so he decided to 
publish a new version. 

Priscilla Roulllard's little boy, David, is following in the footsteps of 
his father, Dick. He has just disassembled his father's new 19S9 Mercury auto- 
mobile. What comes next, Pris??? 

Josephine Carriere crashed the film industry. Her latest picturewhich will 
be released in 1960 is "My Love For Norman." 

Leslie Patterson is still trying to recover from his long illness at sea. 
It seems that he joined the Navy two months ago and was given sea duty I OhI 
those rolling waves. 

Earl Weir Jr., the Captain of the Luxury liner, has recently set up a new 
port in Boston. 



Marion Feaver and her fiance, Jimmy, were seen on Captain V.'eir'a new liner 
headed for the Hcwaian Islands. These two were Earl's first passengers fromthese 
parts. 

K!arjorie Harris has Just won the Championship record at the V.orlds Arenafor 
High Jumping with her horse, Star. 

Jimmy Darganhas finally found his long-lost love ^nita after traveling ov er 
20C0 miles in search of her. Now they have settle in a 6-rocm house in Nebraska. 

Vivian LaRocca has finally succeeded in achieving her ambition. Take it 
easy Viv on that electric typewriter. She has now reached the speed of 201 words 
a minute. 

The Class of '49 has Just had their reunion at Jimnn.'' Lydon's new nit;ht c? ub. 
It is said that when Dick and Duster's contract with the Symphony expires, they 
will play at Lydon's Club for a year. 



Histajz y. 




CLASS HI^TC'RY 

'fS'lde-eyed and clutching our books in our little damp palins we, the forty- 
niners, entered the clessic portals of that seat of learning, the V.estwood High 
School. 

Cf course, boys will be boys, and giils will be girls, and never the twain 
shall meet, at least that's what Coach Eutler and Lisa I.:cCarthy began to think 
when they put on parties in the gym and tried to get the bsshful boys and the 
simpering girls to dance with eac.^ other to the rhythm of the Juke box. You 
should see us now, see what a high school education does for onel However, the 
seventh grade cane nnd went like a bee? dream with homework on the side. 

By the time we \^e^e in the eighth grade, we began to look upon the high 
school as our very own, and we even took a superior attitude tov;ard V.ias Yauga's 
Todel T, and we were only mildly amused at some of V.r . Sarris's best stories 
including the one about the bear and the elevator. Let's see. Just how did 
that go? Then there was the tine that Vr. Sarris, the eager beaver, took us on 
a bird walk, or was it 3 witch hunt, anyway we hnd nature in the raw including 
sore muscles and scratched legs, Sabo and the boys, however, salvaged a good 
swim out of the event fJhlle the girls turned their heads, (psst, psst, that's 
supposed to be a secret). 

Freshmen at last we became, and with a brave front and much loss of appet- 
ite, we dissected worms and frogs and such under I'r. Sarris's direction and glee- 
fully left the remains with him. Vie always suspected that he was the p^rly bird. 
Our class advisors were, curiously enough, those two mathematical wizards, L-lr. 
Sarris and Lr, Dlckerman, who stuffed us with Algebra, basted us with geometry, 
and kept us over a roaring fire of general math until we were well done, all the 
while being needled by Mr. Dickerrcan as idiots and fools and by I'.v. Sarris as 
parasites and second-grade m.orons (the flatterers). Miss Steven (no relation 
to the present Llr, Stevens) exposed us to Freshm.an Englirrh which was rather in- 
considerate of her at the time because we had Just developed s very choice vo- 
cabulary of slang such as: But natch; don't be ridic; but def; slick chick; hey 
barba-re-bop; and hubta-hubba, ^s for Shakespeare! Dear, dear, we v:ere all agog 
when "As You Like If* was being shown at the Esquire Theater, and an expedition 
was arranged for the forty-niners to invade Boston by bus and train under the 
leadership of I-'iss Stevens (poor gal). If she had known us better she would have 
drowned us quietly, and then gone along to enjoy herself. As it was, the ''Last 
Round-Up" was a patty-cake party compared with the job of getting the forty- 
niners safe into the theater and back home again. 

Our stolwart friends with bugle voices cheered on our athletes with the 
school's first cheer-leader squad consisting of Barbare Papasedero, Virginia 
O'Bocki, Barbara Fey, and J^an L'artiL who have functioned successfully through- 
out our high school history (look what eventually happened with our girl's 
champion basketball te&r.s). 

The curtain raiser of cur sophisticated sophomore year was a very digni- 
fied election of our officers. 

The class of '4S welcomed September , •46 because now we were sophomorfts and 



could look down on those lowly freshmen. Many re:uarks were ;nade by us about this, 
but all in fun, as we well remembered our own tormentors. 

Although full of fun and fancy-free, we settled down long enough to elect 
Dave Smith as President, John i'urner as Vice-president, Carol Kennedy as Secretary, 
and Barbara Fay as treasurer. This was the year of catching up on dues and wonder- 
ful ideas. The dues worked out but only one idea withstood the bantering cf the 
forty-niners. Our one idea was a dance vrtiich we named "The Sophomore Swing." It 
fulfilled our expectations and helped make three figures in our treasury book. 

Even though we didn't contribute too much to the school as a class, we put 
Gwp fellov's on the football team. These two, Sabo and John, received many ad:niring 
glances for their aid in giving Westwood an ur.defeated season. Ye were also well 
represented in the cheerleader squad, all the basketball teams, the baseball team, 
and many took part in the various e^rtra-curricular activities of that year. 

We left school in June, knowing that half our journey was over and that when 
we returned we'd be in the upper category of school which called for a bit of 
dignity. T'Jhen September did come, we upheld our own prophecy of dignity, amid the 
squirt gun battles carried on by our senior friends. Our slate of officers for 
one of our most important years was Dave Smith, President; Al Frechette, vice - 
president; Carol Kennedy, Secretary; sind Barbara Munroe, Treasurer, 

Since dancing was one of our favorite pastimes, the Class of '49 planned two 
dances for the first part of the year. The geniuses cf our class were captivated 
by the most original decorative ideas of Gloria TumTiillo, Anne MacLeod, and Card 
McFaul. 

Although all were interested in these dnnces, we couldn't wait for May and 
our Prom given for the Seniors. But time flew by quickly, and May soon came. Our 
advertising committee well earned their title for this big event, and en May 14, 
194s, the gym of W.H.S. was turned into a beautiful garden with "tea tables" and 
chairs surrounding it. The girls v/ere in their lovliest arrays and their prince 
charmings looked very handsome in their sparkling white shirts and well-pressed 
tuxedos. Gloria TLunmillo, Joyce Cresser, and Barbara Papasedero were chosen with 
others to attend the queen to her crowning ceremony. But, all wonderful things 
must end, and scon all we had left of our Junior Prom was a dance program, perhaps 
a picture, and may happy memories. 

Now it was June and as we watched the Commencement activities for the last 
time as undergrads, we realized that in September vre would be the class to be 

looked up to the ones to set examples for other classes. With raised heads 

we looked forward to this, our last and senior year at Westwood High School. 

This was the year W.H. S. was revolutionized. With the coming of new teachers 
came a new interest in classes. Whether it was the teachers or the classes, though, 
we'll never know. 

To keep up with this all-out interst, the forty-niner's elected Dave 'Smith 
as its leader for the third consecutive year, with John Turner as his most able 
assistant, Barbara Munroe was again assigned to the duty of guarding our fortune, 
and Priscilla Rouillard took over the job of keeping our class in close contact 
with the rest of the world. 

Our first social event — a Halloween dance was closely followed ly the 



Football Dance. Both were complete successes, but how could they have been other- 
wise with the forty-niners in charge I 

With Thanksgiving past and school resumed again, we held a most important 
class meeting. The current topic was "V/ho would be the most capable editor of our 
yearbook?" The editorship went to Jo Carriere with Popsy as her assistant. Thera 
could be no one better for this trying job and our choice coiald not be outdone. 

When we returned in January, the most important social event of the year was 

upon us the presentation of our play, "Come Over to Our House" was chosen by a 

unanimous vote. Soon all the Helen Hayses' and Clark Gables' of the Senior Class 
could be seen talking to the.aselves in study halj.. This antagonized the teacher, 
of course, but this use of study hall proved of great advantage vhen our play brought 
down the house. Much of our success was due to the hard work of Mrs. Smith our ad- 
visor. 

Another success this year was that Popsy, Barb Munroe,and Margie Harris took 
part in the girls undefeated basketball team. This has never been surpassed by any 
other Westwood team before. 

Only the Senior Prom was left between this, our last presentation, and gradu- 
ation. For this event, the class of '50 outdid themselves that we might remember 
them in the years to come. For this we can only give a heartfelt thank you. 

June, 1949 this meant that we were no longer g^een freshmen, silly Sopho- 
mores, or trying hard to be dignified juniors, but Seniors, young men and v/omen , 
ready to enter into a world where we will no longer be guided and protected by 
others. Now we will have to guide our own lives some will contine their edu- 
cation, others will join the business world, but always the Class of 1949 will 
give sincere thanks to Miss Fay, our class advisor, and to those many other teachers 
who made the green years of our lives something really worth remembering.

year by electing as its officers; Fred Gerulskis, President, Lanni 
Garner, Vice-president, Stella Campenella, Secretary, and Norman John- 
son, Treasurer. This slate of officers helped to lead the classthrough 
a most profitable year. 

An assembly sponsored by the class early in the year featuredmany 
of the talented members. The boys got together and put over e very 
successful paper drive, the money from which was set aside towards the 
class trip or Senior Banquet we hope to have. The girls, not to be out- 
done, sponsored a food sale and tea in the latter part of October, The 
Junior Class Harvest Hop was also sponsored in October, with typical 
autumn decorations being displayed. 

After a short rest period, the Christmas Candy Campaign was started 
with vigor, and brought in splendid results. 

The Junior-Senior Prom, held in the gymnasium on May 20, showed 
to an ideal degree what could be accomplished by a class of ambitious 
and hard-working students, aided by their teachers. This was our fare- 
well to the Seniors,

quickly and became a popular fad in the school. 

Our Sophomore year was filled with activity. We ordered our class 
rings in November;in January several talented members of our class 
presented an asse.nbly to the school. In February we sponsored a food 
sale. All our activities were successful ventures.

TROPHIES 



THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 



The Athletic Association of 1948-1949, under the supervision of Mr, 
Stevens, the advisor, has been active this year. 

The officers, elected by the senior high student body, are as fol- 
lows: President, James Dargan; Vice President, Barbare Munroe; Secretary 
Josephine Carriere; and Treasurer, Virginia O'Bocki. 

This year the A. A. has been selling booster tickets, candy, and 
soda at the football games as a means of raising the funds of the as- 
sociation. 

With the assistance of the Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior and Senior 
classes, the association was able to present the first seventeen men on 
the football squad with jackets. 

Seasons tickets were sold to students of the high school along with 
membership cards. Those who purchased membership cards received their 
seasons tickets at a lower rate. Seasons ticketswere good for heme bas- 
ketball games only. They were good for both boys and girls games. 

The selling of T-shirts and sweat shirts bearing the town seal is 
one of the projects v^ich the A. A. took up during the year. It was a 
project vrtiich had never before been attempted, and it proved successful. 

The officers of the Athletic Association wish to express their 
thanks to Mr. Stevens for his guidance throughout the year. 



TRI-COUNTY LEAGUE CUP 



The boys brought a great honor to Westwood last year when they 
captured the Tri -County League title in baseball. 

They had a tough fight to the end, but, soon the playoffs brought 
victory and a championship team back to Westwood. 

Class day 1948 was the scene of the presentation of the Cup, by 
the league president, Mr. Brown, principal of Millis High School. Mem- 
bers of the squad in 1948 who helped bring the first athletic trophy to 
Westwood High were: 

Pitchers: Paul Sheehan, Leslie Patterson 

Catcher: Fred Gerulskis 

First Base: John Turner 

Second Base: Herbert Munroe 

Third Base: Jerry Scherer 

Shortstop: Paxil Gibbons

SENIOR CHEERLEADERS 



Just after school got underway in September, many girls could be 
found learning new cheers in the gym. And for what were they prepar- 
ing? The cheerleading tryouts would take place the second week of school. 

On September l6, approximately fifty girls performed, and the fac- 
ulty chose the best girls to represent W.H.S. Barbara Papasedero, Bar- 
bara Fay, and V'irginia O'Bocki were the chosen Seniors. Marjorie Por- 
teous, Helen Coombs, and Dot MacMunn,the Juniors, Georgian Del'Etoile, 
the Sophomore, and Betsey Kelsey, the Freshmen made up the rest of the 
team. Barbara Fay and Popsy were chosen as captains. Here we would 
like you to note that the three Seniors were members of the first real 
squad in 1946 and have been cheerleaders for the past four years. 

From the time the squad was chosen up until the last basketball 
game was played, it cheered at every football and boy's basketball game. 
A finer squad couldn't be found anywhere and their vivaciousness will 
long be remembered by their opponents and Miss 0' Neil, their advisor. 



JUNIOR CHEERLEADERS 



It was an afternoon in November and there were about fifty to sixty 
girls in the gym trying out for cheerleading. The teachers who judged 
were Miss O'Neil, Mr, Pierce, Mrs. Nelson, Mr. Kocina. Barbara Fay 
and Barbara Papasedero, captains of the Senior Cheerleader squad, were 
also judges. 

The five girls picked from the eight grade were, Patty Lee, Do- 
lores LaRocca, Merry Hughes, Eleanor Haley, and Joanne Aaron. The sev- 
enth graders were Elsa Janson, Lois Kelsey, and Deborah Mclnnis. The 
Junior Cheer Team has cheered at every girl's game.

GIRLS BASKETBALL 
Coach: Miss O'Neil 

The Westwood High School girls' basketball teamoompleted itsaeason 
on January twenty-fifth undefeated. In eight starts they brought victory 
though it often eitailed aUght to the finish. The team was comparatively 
green with three juniors, Betty Dargan, Ruth McGilly, and Pat Scrensen, 
and three sophomores, Beverly Draper, Ann Gibbons, and Joan Savage, as 
its first string forwards. Veterans "Popsy" and Barb Kunroe returned 
as guards with new-comer Helene Giobons making up the trio, backed by 
Shirley Carroll, Martha Alcott, and Ruthie Tolman. Through long and 
hard practice the team shaped up and defeated Medfield in its opener 
on December 2 by an overwhelming score of 46-I8. However, the second 
game with Killis brought more competition, but the girls came through 
with a 30-28 win. 

Excitement broke loose at the Medway game, when in the final minutes 
Westwood took the game with a score of 19-16. 

On January 25th, in the last lap, Westwood met ^'oxboro, who de- 
feated them last year in their last game. It almost looked as though 
jinx were there ^ain when in the final seconds of the game Ruth McGilly 
sank a basket from mid-court, to defeat Foxboro 28-26. The girls had 
completed an undefeated season, the. first in the annai of Westwoo d 
High School I In seventeen starts they have dropped but one game — a re- 
cord any school woiild be proud to boast of. 

The second team captained by Lorraine Carroll also completed an 
undefeated season. Their competition, however, was not close. There 
was not a single game in which there was any doubt as to vrtio was going 
to win. 



Runner-up to Betty Dargan' s grand total of 96 points for the season 
was Lorraine Carroll, a sophomofe, vrtio scored a total of 93 points, 
having played seven out of eight games. Betsy Fisher's excellent 
passing was a big factor in the second team's victories. 




BOYS BASKETBALL 
Coach: George Bader 



IVhile the girls were on their merry way making fast competition for neigh- 
boring towns our male teams got off to a flying start by sweeping Medfield on 
our court by the overpowering score of 43-21. 

The second gamevas a fast andfUrious one played at Wayland with the Orange 
and Black subsiding over our green and vihlte clad men by the score of 43-23 • 

The game sfc Weston was more promising as to the future aspects of our team. 
The boys fought throughout the entire game only to be beaten by the close score of 
30-27. 

The fast-thinkingM-llis team traveled to Westwood only to be beaten by a 
score of 36-29. Playing orfe of their best games the Badermen were defeated in 
the last few minutes of play by Dover to end the game 28-24. 

The next five games brought victory to the green and vrfiite. Thefbrfolk 
Aggies took a terrific beating with the final score 99-16. Our next win was over 
Medfield. The game was close the entire way through, but, finally, they 
were overcome by the power in the Westwood line-up. The final score was 35-25. 
Wayland was defeated by a score of 33-30. Our next game with Weston was one 
of the toughest we played. Parker McLaren tossed in 23 points to help take the 
game with a score of 49-24. Our last victory for the season was over Millis . 
With both teams determined to be the victors the Badermen had a tough struggle 
but they finally pulled the game out with the ending score 35-30. 



After our five-game winning streak the boys met two defeats, '©newith 
and one with the Norfolk Aggies. 



Dover 



Coach Bader certainly has done winders with the boys and no finer group can 
be foiind anywhere. The fine cooperation among the team showed up the entire 
season. Their courtesy and fine sportsmanship will long be remember in the 
years to come. 




FOOTBALL 



At the beginning of the 1948 football season at ^-'estwood High School, things 
did not look too promising with only a handful of lottermen returning from the 
previous season. The rest of the team was to be composed of inexperienced men, 
some of whom had never before played football. 

The following W5ek a strong Foxboroteam which later captured the state class 
D title, thoroughly defeated the Westwood gridders 34-0. In this game the West- 
wood team suffered a severe loss when Jimmy Darg an, veteran signal caller, broke 
his collarbone. The Westwood team showed vast improvement against Franklin be- 
fore finally succumbing to a 37-18 defeat. The next engagement with St. Mary's 
of Milford proved to be a nip and tuck struggle with St. Mary's scoring in the 
finail period to edge out Westwood 7-0. Our next foe was a Medway team v^ich had 
enjoyed about as much success as Westwood during the season. When the smoke of 
battle finally cleared, the game was a stalemate 0-0. 

A highly regarded Weston team brought an \inblemished record into its game 
with Westwood. Weston drew first blood early in the first period and vdiile 
holding Westwood at bay in the first half, it looked like another setback for the 
green and white. A thoroughly rejuvenated Westwood team stepped on the gridiron 
in the second half and outplayed Weston, and came back and ended the ianbeaten,and 
untied team by tying them 7-7. 

The following week Westwood followed up their gi-eat tie with V/eston by beating 
a comparatively strong Wayland t earn 7-6, 

Westwood aiffe red a bitter defeat at the hands of an underdog Howard eleven- 
13-12. 



It was £gain time for the ainual Turkey Day. engagement with the gold and blue 
of Medfield. Westwood downed their traditional rivals in a bitter struggle, vrtiich 
was earmarked by good running and sharp tackling, 13-6.

This year the Student Council, with Miss Keenan as advisor, had a 
full schedule of assembly programs, campaigns, and dances. 

The officers and the representatives of each class have continued 
their fine work and have really made this year a good one. 

The most important project of the year was a variety assembly which 
was given for all the students who had completely paid their class dues 
thus encouraging other students to pay their dues. The assembly con- 
sisted of musical duets, skits, and solos and really showed what talent 
some members of our school have.

Mr. Markarian 



GLEE CLUB 



One of the best musicians and directors ever to have come to West- 
wood High School came to us in September, 1948, in the person of J. J. 
Markarian, Jr. 

His first acheivement v^as the Christmas Concert. Every seat in 
the aiditoriura was filled on the opening night, which was December 22,1948. 
The soloists were Gerry Gooch, Audrey Beaudoin, Gloria Tumraillo, Barbara 
Fay, and the ^lee Club sang the traditional carols. 

The most outstanding feature in the programs was Moore-Darby ' s 
"T'Was the Night Before Christmas" vrtiich was sung by the Double Quartet. 
Because of Mr. Markarian' s interest and long hours of work our program 
was a success. 

To Mr. Markarian gDes our deepest appreciation for his patience and 
understanding. 



^ArES^^^OOD HIGH SCHOOL BAND 



The Westwood High School Band has made great progress this year 
under the direction of our new conductor, Mr. Markarisui. The excel- 
lent addition to the volume of the band is the souzaphone purchased by 
the school and very ably played by i'Vancis Booth. 

The band has been supplied with new music this year which was en- 
couraged hard work and better playing by its members. 

At the home football games the band played and also at various 
assemblies. It was well received by everyone. 

The band took part in the Christmas music festival this year by 
playing well-known Christmas carols. 

The progress of the bEind this year is out standing, and our gratitude 
goes to Mr. Markarian whose industriousness and wonderful patience have 
brought the Westvraod High School Band to greater heights for the school 
year of 1948-49.

THE SENIOR PLAY 



One of the biggest anticipations of our Senior year was our Senior 
play. We decided to present "Come Over to Our House," a story whichseemed 
to represent our "Green Years." 

ApLay of mode rnyDuth, the story revolves around the Eldridge family, 
vriio go through the usual ups and downs of the average household. Of 

course, you have the "typical complications twins, an older end a younga* 

sister, and even Hollywood versus the Symphony. With these ingredients 
you can more or less guess the outcome of the story. It's a comedy so 
all ended happily in the play, and all ended happily for the all the 
actors. 

The confusion and excitement of rehearsing and performing are all 
in the past as events, but they certainly will never be forgotten by the 
Senior class. Never to be forgotten also, will be Mrs. Smith's work 
in our behalf. Her patience and direction gave us the inspiration to 
do our best in "Cjme Over to Our House." 



DRAMATICS CLUB 



During the school year of 1948-49, the Dramatics Clubvas hard at 
work producing plays under the leadership of its president, Virginia 0' 
Bocki. 

On the 10th and 11th of December, three one-act plays, under- the 
very capable direction of Mrs. Smith and Miss Burns, proclaimed the 
birth of new stars at V7estwood. 

The first pLay, "The Princess Marries the Page", by Edna St. Vincent 
Millay was a very well done ana deserved the acclaim that it won. The 
other two plays, "Early Cnadlelight", and "Charity Ball", were in 
a lighter vein, and they were also heralded as a success. 

To show the appreciation of the club members to its directors. 
President 0' Bocki presented to both Mrs. Smith and Miss Burns aoorsage 
of red roses. And in the appreciation to all who have supported us, 
the Dramatic Club says, "Thank youl" 



THE FRENCH CLUB

Advisor 
Mr. Rinaldi 



To create an understanding of the French people and acquire a know- 
ledge of their customs, the French students organized in October, 1948, 
to create the "Le Cercle Francais." 



Two French children were "adopted" by the cluo and each month a 
box of food and another of clothing were sent to the orphans, these 
things were well appreciated by our unfortunate little friends. 

Under the supervision of Barbara FaA', social chairman, the club 
has attended many movies and enjoyed eating at several quaint and color- 
ful restaurants. An assembly was given on March 10, at which time a 
French play was presented. 

The Cercle has had a most successful year, very much due to the 
guiding hand of Monsieur Rinaldi, our supervisor and friend. 



YE.\RBOOK 1949 




Editor: Josephine Carriers 



Advisors: Miss Mac Quarrie 
Miss Fay 



Much of our appreciation goes to Josephine Carriers, our Editor, 
who worked many long hours diligently and patiently over this our mas- 
terpiece. A great deal of credit should be given the entire staff for 
its cooperative spirit, but especial mention should be made of the 
splendid work done by Barbara Monroe. 

Gerry Gooch, in spite of many obstacles set before her, did a fine 
job in the Advertising Department. And, in the same Department, Joe 
Hammond deserves much praise for his painstaking work on the printing 
of the ads. 

Our artists, oh what would we do without theml To Sally Tolman, 
Gloria Tummillo, Anne MacLeod, and Carol Kennedy go our many thanks. 

And thanks, of course, go to to our two advisors. Miss MacQuarrie 
and Miss Fay, v^o so ably bore with us through all our trials and trib- 
vilations. 



And, last but by no means least, we wish to thank our long list 
of partons and patronesses who thus showed their interest in our en- 
deavors .

JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM, KAY, 19A8. 



The prom put on by the class of '49 for the senior dass 
of "48" was the biggest and best prom ever put on at West- 
wood High School, David Smith, presented the senior advisoi; 
Kiss Keenan, and the junior advisor, Kiss Fay, with corsages. 

The class went out for it in gallant way. Gloria and 
Ann did a superb job with planning the ueautiful decorations 
that adorned the gyainasiiim for the night of Kay 14. A garden 
scheme was chosen and the class selected the color silver to 
carry out the decorations. Every member of the class collected 
tin foil all year to maike the silvery atmospliere at the proia 
The center of the gym was attractively decorated with a bird 
bath surrounded with grass. Above it, hanging from braided 
cords of pastel colors, were silver and pastel bird cages. 
The sides of the gymvere arranged in the usual cabaret style 
with pastel tablecloths. The effect of the garden was very 
becoming and attractive. 

Later, after the grand march, which was led by Herbert 
Kunroe, senior class pr-esident; and David Smith, junior class 
president; the chaperones Kiss Keenan, Dr. and Krs. Booth, 
Kiss Fay, and Kr. and Krs. Thurston chose the King and Queen 
of the prom. 

Their choice was Nancy KcLaren and John Turner. As their 
attendants they chose Barbara Papasederc, Joyce Cresser, Gloria 
Tummillo,and Natalie Sturtevant .The queen was ushered to the 
center of the gym by the attaidants where John crowned her 
with an attractive crown of carnations. Immediately after- 
wards, the escorts of the attendants began dancing with 
them and the five couples enjoyed a peaceful dance by them- 
selves vdth the parents watching in the corridor and the rest 
of the couples looking on from the sidelines.. 

We're sure no one will forget the Junior-Senior prom 
put on by the class of '49. A grand time was had by all who 
attended.
